TAXPAYER ALERT !!

Just when you thought that taxes couldn’t get much worse---guess what?

THE TAX and SPEND CARMAN-AINSWORTH SCHOOL BOARD WANTS YOU TO INCREASE YOUR TAXES TWELVE (12%) PERCENT BY VOTING FOR A

$ 49,750,000.00 TAX INCREASE FOR 25 YEARS

THE AVERAGE HOMEOWNER WILL PAY $210.00 MORE EACH YEAR PLUS INCREASES EVERY YEAR FOR 25 YEARS.
INFLATION RATE FOR 2001 WAS 3.4%.
IN 2001 SCHOOL SALARIES PAYABLE INCREASED 6.6%

THE SUPERINTENDANT’S SALARY OF APPROXIMATELY $108,000.00 YEARLY FOR A STUDENT BODY OF ABOUT 5,000. THIS FIGURE, COMPARED WITH THE NATIONAL MEDIAN OF $113,000.00 FOR A STUDENT BODY OF 25,000 OR MORE, IS EXTRAVAGANT TO SAY THE LEAST.
(refer to the book ‘Dumbing Down’ & also The Flint Journal)

THIS TAX INCREASE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TEACHERS OR TEACHING.
44% of this mileage increase is to expand classrooms…..
Carman-Ainsworth enrollment has only increased 85 students in more than 11 years.

REVENUES IN FROM PROPERTY TAXES INCREASED 18% IN 2001.
CARMAN SCHOOL DISTRICT GETS 12% OF THESE REVENUES.

 

SAY ‘NO’ TO THIS HUGE TAX INCREASE !
TAXES DOMINATE FAMILY BUDGETS

Ø The typical family pays more in taxes than it spends on food, clothing, and shelter combined!

Ø Taxpayers work January 1st to May 7th to earn enough money to pay all federal, state, and local taxes. 

Ø The typical worker now toils nearly three hours out of an eight- hour workday just to pay taxes.
